You missed a bit. Thing is you'll only spot which bit when you're laying the paint on! The results will be worth it but I remember the prep and paint process being an ache when I did mine

I've only etch primed where its been down to bare metal or been welded.

The whole car has been scuffed over, I'll give it once last blast though!

hit it, hit it, look forward to it, o and earth the car to floor with jump lead,
and dont shoot it like andy mc,nabb in iraq
go steady and cover it even, even if its a bit dry you can get it back when dry,
dipending on if you use enuff paint,
if you get clever you may get runners and you dont want, that exstra bother,

Lungs not too bad, I stayed outside most of the time while a mate painted it in proper gear.

Nine hours masking pulled off in 20min, almost a shame!

It's come out well, a bit of polshing needed when its hardend fully here and there but how far do I go?

Started putting bits of grills back on, want to get the front spillter mounted but I really should crack on with the doors!

Yes, doors are the next job. They are untouched so far so I'll have to strip and prep them for paint.
